Sweet Potato Pie
by Chef Deedle

The South is known for its good cooks and good food. Recipes are passed down to their children for preserving traditional recipes that have been made over and over, year after year. He is my wife's recipe for Sweet Potato Pie from her mother.
3 cups mashed cooked sweet potatoes
3 Tbsp butter, softened
2 lg. eggs
1 cup sugar
1 - 2 Tbsp. flour
½ tsp salt
½ cup buttermilk
¼ tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 unbaked (9 inch) pastry shell\

Combine sweet potatoes, butter, and eggs, mixing well. Combine sugar, flour, and salt; stir into potato mixture. Combine buttermilk and soda; add to potato mixture, mixing well. Stir in vanilla. Pour filling into pastry shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until set. Serve warm or cool. Absolutely delicious!
